So, I can no longer contain my excitement about The Curve Fashion Festival this year! It will be my first time attending the event and I am soooo excited having missed out in previous years due to other commitments!
The festival itself, in partnership with New Look, is held in Liverpool on the 9th September and is the largest UK plus size fashion event! Not only is this a place to shop all your favourite brands under one roof, you can watch catwalk shows and even maybe meet some of your favourite plus size stars!
Menswear will be avaliable at the festival for the first time this year, and I was thrilled to hear that Debenhams will be bringing their Big and Tall range of menswear with them! The Big and Tall range collection at Debenhams is available in a range of sizes, up to 58” Chest and 52” waist and sizes up to 6XL, plus up to a size 15 shoe!!! The range us super stylish and caters for everything you can take a look at it here! It’s great to see a range of menswear like this as I know it can be difficult for plus size men too So ladies, grab your husband, boyfriend, brother, father, uncle or friends and bring them along with you!! I’m sure they won’t get bored!
As a plus size woman, I have always been told which glasses to choose to suit my face shape and it’s so annoying! I’ve recently had my eye test and updated my glasses and I wanted to share my glasses story with you all about when and why I decided to start just choosing the styles I wanted.
I have astigmatism in both my eyes. It is a relatively common condition and alot of people who wear glasses have it in some form. It can be mild but mine is quite extreme and without glasses or contact lenses I cannot really see, it’smore noticable when I’m trying to read or focus on something but most things look a bit blurry without them on!!
Astigmatism occurs when you have an uneavenly curved lens or cornea in the eye. It causes blurred images becuase the light entering the eye is not focused properly on the retina. So basically, my glasses work to correct astigmatism by compensating for the irregular curve in my eye. It has got worse overtime and I’ve noticed that I need to wear my glasses all the time in order to stop headaches and squintining. I also have to wear a special type of contact lense – but more about that another time!
I’m always so excited when I hear that a brand I love is launching a curve collection, so when I heard that Quiz was launching it’s very own curve range I did a little eeeee inside. Here is my latest outfit featuring quiz curve!
So, just like with the River Island plus launch, I did not rush out and buy anything from the Quiz range at first. Although I love Quiz, I’m always a little bit wary, mostly about sizing and fit. So I like to wait until I’ve seen the items reviewed by others first before I rush out and buy something.
So the last couple of weeks have not been my best, I really haven’t been well and this has meant that the blog has majorly suffered this March! But fear not, because I have been scheduling posts for you lovely lot this week and today I thought I’d share with you an outfit I wore recently, featuring a really colourful So Fabulous printed dress.
So if you’re not familiar with the So Fabulous range, it’s sold online at Very and Little woods. I personally think that most of the range is trendy and fashionable and it offers another option for us plus size ladies. I don’t often shop at Very anymore, but I got an email about a sale and couldn’t resist a little peep!
Hi everyone! I’m relatively new to wearing jeans, it’s become alot more comfortable for me somewhere along the way to embracing and loving my body! Today I’m sharing with you an outfit featuring these plus size skinny jeans that were kindly sent to me by Simply Be!
Being plus size it’s really hard to find comfy jeans that fit well and are great quality! The first pair I ever bought were from Simply Be and pretty much all of my jean collection is made up of jeans from them. What I love about their range of jeans is that there are so many different styles so even if you’re not a skinny jeans kinda girl like me there will be something for you! You can check out the range by clicking here!
Hello and welcome to the first instalment of Dress Up Friday! This is all about taking the well know dress down Friday and turning it into something glam! This month I have chosen to feature the Boohoo Plus Elizabeth Midi Dress!
I love the Boohoo Plus range, not only does it provide so many options for us plus size babes, it’s extremely affordable too so it’s a must if you’re looking for affordable fashion!
Because I’m so short, I often worry about buying things that are described as “midi” mainly because they tend to sit at my ankles! This dress is perfect though, it is perhaps a little longer at the back than I would like, but because of the Hi-Lo detailing it really works for me.
The fabric is quite thick and I love the Bardot style with the fold down detailing. The skirt is pleated at the front and really full, I definitely get a 50’s vibe from it!
Ahhh January, back to work for me, but don’t forget that this is the month of mega sales and awesome savings! Today I thought I’d share my January sale picks with you, I love the sales because even though it’s last seasons picks, you can always find something that can transition with you into next season at half the price. I hope you like my picks!
Wow, I can’t believe it’s the 19th December already! I’ve been busy lately with parties and celebrations, but I wanted to share one of my latest purchases with you today. I recently bought this River Island Plus Bardot Swing Dress and for my first purchase from them, I was really excited!
I wore this on Saturday for the first time, I went to the annual family gathering and as soon as I put it on I fell in love. The bardot neckline is so on trend and I love the fact that it has long sleeves. I love the colour for this season and how effortless it is to wear this dress with anything!
Hi guys, happy Friday! It’s time for the next instalment of the party perfect series, party perfect footwear! Shoes to me are a really essential part of any outfit, especially when a party is involves. So whether it’s flats or heels I’ve found the perfect pair for you!
You don’t need to wear heels this party season to dazzle in your favourite LBD! These pumps add the perfect touch of glamour and save your feet at the same time. Practical and comfortable but still stylish and elegant!
Happy Friday! and thank god it’s here! I have plans this weekend so I’m looking forward to getting dressed up and seeing my friends! Today i’m bringing you the next instalment in the party perfect series with this post, plus size party outfit ideas! With so much to choose from on the high street now, I have chosen three outfits which I think you are going to love!
Bodysuit – Boohoo Plus £12.oo, Skirt – New Look Curves £22.99, Black Velvet Clutch – New Look £17.99, Shoes – Simply Be £30.00
Everyone knows the little black dress is the party staple for every woman, we all have that go to black dress that we wear all the time, but what if you were to switch things up a bit! This outfit takes the timeless little black dress and turns it into a completely new concept! Even though everything is still black, I love the combo of this Boohoo Plus bodysuit and New Look Curves tu-tu skirt. The style of the bodysuit means there is no need for a necklace and you could add a pop of christmas colour with a blazer jacket!
